Nursery Rhymes - lyrics and origins!
Every child loves being told nursery rhymes. All of the most popular nursery rhymes are listed here - perhaps they will bring back fond memories of your childhood! Can you remember the tunes to the nursery rhymes? The most requested nursery rhymes are Jack and Jill, Humpty Dumpty, Sing a song of sixpence and last but not least Hey diddle diddle! As I was born and bred in London my favourite nursery rhymes have to be 'Oranges and Lemons' which recreate the sound of the chimes of many old churches once in London, however if you look at the origins of the lyrics for this nursery rhyme the meaning of the last sentences are quite sinister.
